Many at-risk students perform poorly in high school because they receive little or no career guidance or advice Yet, they aspire a better life. They are frustrated and disappointed. They believe college is their best way out of poverty. But, with no resources, no strategy, and no support, college is an unrealistic option.

PWP - A Co-Curricular Career Club for Pearls 
Despite difficult circumstances, the at-risk students identified by PWP have the natural gifts and talents they need to prosper in career life. By joining a PWP chapter at their high school, they develop skills by participating in a College Track process that enables them to graduate from high school and go on to college while remaining in the PWP Pipeline.   

High School Pearl Membership Fee: $10 Per Year
